@JacobsMama:  I’m getting SO excited!  We literally JUST ordered our wedding bands; they’ll be here in 2-3 weeks.  Also, my bridal shower and bachelorette party are next weekend!  I’m really looking forward to seeing my family and friends and having them all together, some of whom I haven’t seen in nearly 10 months!  

48 days!

@JacobsMama:  

@SophieB3:  

I can’t believe it’s almost here! We are going to be booking some activities for our honeymoon in the next week or two–I’m so pumped!!

My bach isn’t until 12/27, so a while to go yet. Also, I had to push my dress alterations back until 12/18, eek! But I am trying to remain calm–my dress is A-line/ballgown-y, so it doesn’t need to fit perfectly, lol.

@howsweetitis:  That must be so fun to be planning honeymoon activities! I’m sure your dress will fit perfectly, it is probably best to get it altered closer to your date!

I know! I was working night shift and when midnight clicked past I said to the guys ‘I can now say I’m getting married next month!’

Next month! 33 days!! Aaahhhh!!! We’ve been together for 7 1/2 years, so excited to be husband and wife! The first time I said ‘next month’ I kind of freaked out a bit also. 

Like you said, I’m just trying to keep my lists together and make sure I get all of the little things done. My FI is a deer hunter so he will be gone for the next 3 weekends, so he was busy this last weekend getting the ‘must do before hunting season’ wedding projects done LOL!

I feel like I’m not really in the Christmas spirit though, just too focused on wedding stuff.

I am getting really nervous! Still have lots to do, fiancé hasn’t even gotten a tuxedo yet! And we don’t have his ring either. I just sent our wedding coordinator a hufe list of things to follow up with on our venue. About half of our guests have not RSVPd either which I cannot believe. Omg stressful and exciting at the same time!!! Lol

Ahhhh happy excited!!

My dress just came in and I go for a fitting on Thursday. Shouldn’t need much beyond hemming and adding cups as it’s corset back.

We were shopping for wedding bands last weekend and I think I finally found something I like! It will take around 3-4 weeks to order so I need to get on that!

I want to get as much as I can wrapped up by Christmas so I can relax!

@something_orange:  Get those bands ordered so you can relax! Good luck with your fitting, let us know how it goes!

I went for my first fitting today, so exciting!! Thankfully my dress fits with minor alterations. She is going to adjust the length of the straps slightly to remove a gap in the back, which also tightened up the front, making me feel much more comfortable about the amount of cleavage that was originally showing (way too much for my liking). The only other thing she is doing is adding the bustle, I had her mock up a French Bustle as well as a ‘9 point’ bustle. I went with the 9 point bustle. I am now officially in love with my dress yet again!!

@ValleyGirl1979:  I had the same problem for RSVP! I made the deadline dec 1 and I only had 10 that actually RSVPd two weeks before the deadline so I finally gave in and made a facebook page for it and got over 80 RSVPd in 2 days.. Should have just saved the extra money for the RSVP cards 😐

@FutureMrsBess:  Oh man! That is crazy. I just emailed the list of non-responsives to my mom and sister who are following up with our side of the family. My fiance is taking care of his side. It’s crazy, only a few more weeks to go. I was aiming for around 130 people but looks like we will be at 110 or so. How about you?

I know! I can’t believe it. Where has the time gone?!  

My sister has a countdown on her phone and she inboxed me the other day and says “Umm, it’s 43 days until you get married!”

Our RSVP deadline is in 9 days. Bach party is on the 11th of January. I’ve had my rehearsal dinner dress and my wedding dress done, FI has his suit fitting tomorrow, all we have left to do is the centerpieces, programs, thumbprint tree and the menu. I’ll be able to finish most of that off in the next few days. Oh! I forgot table numbers, I had planned to do them differently, but my idea didn’t work out, so I had to quickly order some stuff off ebay and it says it should get here by Jan 8th- cutting it a little close there!

I feel like I am forgetting SO much stuff. I’m really worried it’s going to get to the day and I’ll have forgotten some huge, obvious thing.

@ValleyGirl1979:  we were aiming around 100. We invited 145 because we knew (or hoped) not everyone would be able to make it! Crazy enough we had exactly 100 RSVPd! It couldnt have been more prefect!
